The University of Illinois College of Agricultural, Consumer and Environmental Sciences, in conjunction with the Illinois Pork Producers Association and The Pork Checkoff, is hosting a swine webinar series that will feature industry experts giving presentations on topics like reproduction, disease, swine management and animal housing issues.

“This webinar series will offer pork producers an excellent opportunity to hear from several different swine industry experts without leaving the comfort of their home or farm office,” said Tim Maiers, IPPA director of industry and public relations. The first webinar, which will be held on Feb. 28, is entitled "Reproduction: Gilt induction of puberty."


Programs will take place on the fourth Monday of each month starting at 2 p.m. CST. Sessions will take 30 minutes with a 15-minute question-and-answer period.
